Week 12 Review

Danni is lying in bed with their head on a penguin cushion. The light behind is causing lens flare.

The photo is terrible but was what I could manage. I really need to ask Johan to take more photos of me 😛

I’m still not quite happy with the blog theme but I’ll get there eventually. At least this one doesn’t have a massive picture on the top (header images aren’t really my thing, as I’m terrible at them).

This week was a bit better than last week. I think I might be coming out of this blehness, though I still don’t know what caused it. I spent a lot of time trying to sleep or looking at cute pictures/reading rubbish on Reddit.

The best parts of the week were having my top changed and a wipe wash with Johan on Wednesday, and having my hair washed with a shampoo cap on Saturday. It was nice to feel cleaner. I also remembered I liked marmalade so had that on toast a few times for lunch, and our favourite pasta restaurant was delivering here again so we got nommy fuds from there on Thursday evening (I love the tagliatelle carbonara and the white chocolate cheesecake). I was asleep for quite a few of the care calls, but by the end of the week I could tolerate the carers being in my room again. Other than a few changes I wasn’t told about (which made me very anxious and panicky) my mood was good.

Johan decided to run to Crawcrook for pizza on Tuesday. He says the pizza, chips and sauce are all just as good as he remembered. I’m a little bit jealous but Crawcrook is a tad far for me to go at the moment. Getting pizza home would also be interesting as it takes nearly an hour on the bus, taxis are expensive and Johan can’t exactly run that far while carrying a pizza.

While Johan was out running I attempted playing Vostok Inc. and Stardew Valley on the Nintendo Switch. Vostok is really fun, but it’s a twin stick shooter and I couldn’t get my hands to do different things so I’d be shooting in the direction I was running instead of at the enemies. I died a few times before giving up. I’ll get Johan to play it for me and try again on PC at some point. Stardew Valley I again struggled with the controls. I think for now the Switch will be mostly Johan’s, and when my hands/concentration gets better I’ll have a go. Luckily we can plug it into the telly so I can watch him playing it 🙂

Saturday I was feeling up to watching things again so I resubscribed to Netflix, as they were offering me another free trial. Watched Nailed It with Johan and it was hilarious. Sal should just never touch a microwave. We had McDonalds as we’d not done a shop since the middle of February so didn’t have much in. It was an awesome day and I hope we can watch more together.

Sunday I had a bit of payback from watching Netflix so didn’t do much. Still felt nowhere near as bad as I did the week before which I’m very grateful for. Hopefully whatever caused that is now gone and I can concentrate on getting up and doing things soon.

    1. We went into it knowing it would be very American (and therefore loud). We really like it because it’s so friendly, and it’s not trying to be serious. Very different to how it would be here but much nicer than some of the other American cooking shows.
